Such amazing strength in the face of criminal neglect...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Mary, you endured such horrific abuse. You were forced to take on so much responsibility at such a young age. The cards you were dealt were stacked against you, yet look at how remarkable you are. Look at how loving you are. Look at the way you overcame. Look at the strength you had as a little girl, making sure your siblings were fed and clothed and schooled, taking care of their every basic need that you possibly could. Look at the strength you have today, making certain the cycle of abuse was broken for the benefit of your own precious children. I am in awe of your determination and amazingly giving spirit. Thank you so much for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

And Mary, I will post your story of healing, but not for another day or two, as I have a couple of other stories that await posting.

Your parents...
by: Francine

Mary, your story made me spit out my coffee! HOW DARE YOUR PARENTS BEAT YOU UP AND GLOAT ABOUT BEATING YOU!!!!!!!!! Your parents are very evil and malicious! I am so sorry that you didn't have good parents and I can relate; I am alone with my psycho parents and they, too, are very ballistic and very abusive. I am also sorry that the cops decided to do nothing about those terrible crimes that your parents deliberately committed against you and your siblings. I am also sorry about your siblings. You might want to talk to a trusted adult. BTW, your mom is wrong...you are NOT ugly; you are beautiful! The only ugliness that I see comes from your so-called parents and their brutal crimes. I am also glad to know that you chose to be a good mother and I hope you try counselling cuz you are worth the help. Take care!
